Big Bows

The theme this time  for my
Butterfly Challenge is

I decided to make a shaker card
using some sequins that had been sent to me in a swap.

The butterfly  paper is Me to You
'Especially For You'
I used it inside the shaker element  as well as on 
the white scallop shaped base card.
The circle was cut with my Sizzix  scallop die.
sentiment is a silver sticker and the 4 pink Gems 
were from my stash.
Pink card was left over snippets from previous makes.
The oversized bow I made from my new Bow Maker toy.
I was so surprised when it came off the prongs looking
"erm " like a bow that I just had to  use it regardless!!

Fabby card my little friend! And that there bow is wonderful! I love the peachy pink colours you used too.

Right, on me 'to-do' list is a butterfly card after the docs tomorrow - yet agaaaain. With no real progress either.

And then a search of the playground for these sea lions. Why sea lions?! At least they are raucous critters so should be easy to track down and then herd wiv me crutches!

I think colder weather is on the way - so get yer fingerless gloves at the ready chick. Me? I'm mostly snuggled on a sofa underneath a fleece - Parsnip pops out now and then for air :)

Forgot to ask - how do you stop the sequins or whatever from sticking to the sticky foam in shaker cards? Talc? Lily of the Valley or African Violet?

Very pretty card there Mrs A.
Not sure your namesake will look good on the stage, she has gone into molting season. Very handy if your duvet needs topping up!! Lavinia is happy to oblige though.
What part have i got then?
